Though these tender chicken sliders are infused with a tasty whiskey and beer flavor, they only clock in at 230 calories per sandwich!
“Using slider buns keeps the sandwiches small and calories in check,” Kalinowski and Stuart say. “You could also use leftover cooked chicken or roast beef to make the sliders. A nice addition would be to top the sliders with a spoonful of vegetable slaw, a great way to use up leftover cabbage and herbs.”
For the sauce:
1 c. barbecue sauce
1 1/2 c. lager beer, such as a pilsner
2 tbsp. whiskey
1 tsp. seasoned salt
1 tsp. garlic-pepper blend
1/2 tsp. ground mustard
1-2 tsp. Buffalo wing sauce or other hot sauce
For the sandwiches:
1 deli rotisserie chicken, skin and bones removed, shredded (about 4 c.)
12 slider buns, split
12 pimiento-stuffed green olives, if desired
In 2-quart saucepan, heat sauce ingredients to boiling over medium heat, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent scorching. In medium microwavable bowl, place chicken; cover. Microwave on High 4 to 5 minutes or until hot. Add shredded chicken to sauce in saucepan, stir to coat. Place about 1/3 c. chicken mixture on bottom of each slider bun; top with bun top. Garnish each sandwich with green olive.
Makes 12 servings.
